Tube End Preparation


What is tube/pipe end preparation?

Tube/pipe end preparation is the critical process, which is key to creating perfect welded joints on tubes and pipes. Preparation may involve: cutting, facing, squaring, beveling or counterboring, but each operation must be carried out consistently and accurately, so that tube preparation is of the same, constant, repeatable quality – time after time!

Accurate tube preparation:

  • Ensures perfect alignment of tubes
  • Produces leak free welded joints
  • Minimises the risk of contamination by creating an optimum seal

Automated welding technologies are directly enhanced by the quality and care invested in tube end preparation.

Where high quality welding is needed, perfect preparation of the pipe is essential!
